Sam Duckworth (Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly.) adds, "Camden is the alternative heart of London. It's a special place when it bursts into life and no more so on occasions like this. I'm excited to be a part of Camden rocks, bringing you some new songs, checking out some great bands and enjoying the chaos"
